      Hello Martin,

      may be a look at my homepage (http://www.microemacs.de) may help you a
      Here just proposals for dummy shortcuts:

      This ugly keyboard...

      It can give trouble at the beginning because many `normal'
      Win-shortcuts are not working as you would expect it (C-c, C-x and C-v
      par example). I propose you
      are putting the following lines into your user.emf to make your live
      easier in the beginning:

      global-bind-key "yank" "A-C-v" ; ie. paste with
      global-bind-key "reyank" "A-C-y" ; this paste the
      previos clip
      global-bind-key "kill-region" "A-C-x" ; ie. cut
      global-bind-key "copy-region" "A-C-c"
      global-bind-key "undo" "A-C-z"
      global-bind-key "save-buffer" "A-C-s"
      global-bind-key "beginning-of-buffer" "C-home" ; adjusts jumping in
      the buffer
      global-bind-key "end-of-buffer" "C-end"
      global-bind-key "end-of-line" "end"
      global-bind-key "beginning-of-line" "home"

      Now you can use the `ALT' and the `CTRL'-key together like you would
      use the `CTRL'-key alone. This should help you (by the way on german
      keyboards, the
      `Alt Gr'-Key is doing this thing also). Furthermore choose `Help User
      Setup Start-Up MS-Shift Key = Y' to get still more Win-Feeling. The
      shortcuts C-x and C-c
      can't be easily reconfigurated to Win-like behaviour because they
      belongs to double shortcuts in the Emacs-Editor-family.
